Built for a James Stewart of Glasgow. By 1900 she was in the ownership of John P Turnbull of Glasgow. Between then and 1910 she was lengthened to 80ft, probably after her salvage following her being stranded at the N end of Calve Island off Tobermoray, Mull,  on 16th March 1900. It is thought that all of her crew perished as a contemporary notation reads "All gone?"

By 1915 she is owned by Archibald Robertson of Waterloo Street (later of Gordon Street) Glasgow.

Her registry was closed in 1925 although her exact fate is not known to me.
